2018 Book Donations to Habitat for Humanity
Last December, our office hosted a charity book-drive. We collected over a thousand books that were donated to Habitat for Humanity, to be sold second-hand in their "Restores". We are very pleased with the participation from our clients, team members and the community as a whole.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-for-profit housing organisation that works to mobilize communities to help working, lower income families build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable home-ownership. We chose to support this cause because they uphold values that we believe in too.
The donated books will be given a new home through the Habitat for Humanity Restores, with all proceeds going directly to the construction of affordable homes for low-income families. This is not only a great way to help the community but also will prevent perfectly good literature from ending-up in a landfill.
Our 2018 charity event was featured in the Toronto Star and Snapd newspaper. We look forward to your participation in our next charity event at the end of 2019.
April Showers bring May Flowers...and Flooding
Fresh water flooding has become an increasing concern for Canadians today. With an aging storm-drain system and increased precipitation due to more severe weather, major floods now represent almost 40% of all natural disasters recorded in Canada.
Particularly when the spring rain is coupled with the melting snow & ice, we encourage our policy holders to review their property insurance. Due to changes in the language surrounding water protection offered by the insurance companies, a basic property policy may not necessarily include the additional coverage needed when it comes to fresh water damages.
We've published a new web page with a break down of this information to offer some insight on this. If you have any questions regarding this and overland / surface water protection for personal property, please call our office to speak with one of our brokers today.
New Referral Program Launched!
As of April 1, 2019, Leslie & Giles Insurance Limited is launching a customer referral appreciation program!
The program is quite simple. All existing clients are encouraged to refer us to their friends & family. For every friend that is referred and that calls us for a quote on their insurance, you will be automatically entered to win a $25 gift card!
On the last business day of every month, we will randomly draw a person's name who has referred a friend and they'll win the gift card
The details on how to participate are as follows:
- An existing client refers their friends and family.
- When they call us for a quote, they let us know who referred them.
- The client is automatically added to that month's draw!
Thanks for participating and we wish you the best of luck!
Not a client yet? Call us for a quote and let's see if we can fix that!
